Nor do I.
I hear you, hinachan. Shar Jackson says he's a great father to her children so there is no reason that Britney's kids won't be taken great care of. I don't believe he's using them for a check.
I realize that, technically, the money is for the kids. I was just basically taking some artistic license and having a rant about Britney. Of course, there are a lot of things on earth worth more (in financial compensation) than marrying Britney--a family losing a loved one to malpractice, for instance. I was just using my usual technique of exaggeration to make a point. Sorry if I wasn't snarky enough to make it fully clear.
Though technically that check is for the children, he shouldn't be using it to compensate himself for the marriage. He went into this marriage knowing what kind of person Britney is. Britney was partying just as crazy as she is today. Before the marriage she was so drunk she married her that guy and then after the marriage she shaved her hair off. Well, maybe worse now. Besides he got money from the divorce settlement. That money is for him.
But agree with you on that last part. She has been given every chance and still refuses to change. When you're in a custody battle, you need to be on your best behavior. She is going to lose those children. It's too late for her to change.
IMHO, it's not that it's too LATE for her to change, just that she's too UNWILLING to change. If she even showed a true willingness to change, I'm sure any judge would make this a temporary arrangement, until Britney had time to get her act together. The fact that she's so stubbornly unwilling is what's going to cause her to lose those kids.
I normally don't like taking kids from their mothers, either. But she's so unstable (and her instability is so much worse due to her drinking and drugging), that those kids are in danger. I'm not saying she'd go berserk and deliberately hurt them...just that she might create a dangerous situation by neglecting them. What if one of them got into Mommy's stash of drugs and overdosed, for instance? There are a million things that could go wrong while those kids are with Britney. It's definitely in their best interest to be taken out of that situation, unless and until Britney ever demonstrates any willingness to get her act together.
I don't like it when the mother is taken from the children, but when the mother is Britney...no!
